No posts this week.
Last week Mother Nature dumped six billion gallons of water onto Seattle in a 24 hour period, thereby calling an official end to ride-your-bike-to-work season.
Since then I have returned to my gym. And I had forgotten what an endless supply of anecdotes the gym provides its patrons. (Some previous ones here & here & here & here & here). I think I will devote this week to relating more of them.
For the record, the Harry Potter post below contains no spoilers. (Or, if it does, they are inadvertent, as I know nothing about the book.)
Also, and just FYI: my review of Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince (which is also spoiler-free) tells you how to get caught up for Deathly Hallows without having to read all the books.
i saw u
I saw u Thurs. at Sam’s Bar & Grill. Me: blond, blue eyes, jeans, Hooters t-shirt, approached and suggested that we go to my place so you could check out my hard drive. You: pretty, petite, dark hair, reading “Underworld”, said you’d rather eat a thumbtack sandwich than go home with me. I didn’t get your number. Call me, drinks? 5099
That’s an old post of mine from 2002, later reprinted in the book “Never Threaten To Eat Your Coworkers: Best of Blogs“.
I’m not entirely sure what’s going on, but, as near as I can tell, some students in a Ohio State University English class are reading Never Threaten, and have been told to comment on the “i saw u” entry. As that post’s comments have long since closed, I’m creating this one in its stead. Go nuts.
P.s. I’ve been in touch with the class instructor and verified that this is on the level, despite all appearances.
P.p.s. Uncharitable comments will be deleted. The OSU students are welcome here and I’ll thank you to treat them as guests. Update: I have given up. The “go nuts” exhortation now applies to all.
